Uganda’s Parliament to Consider Discipline Report Tomorrow; No Meeting Today

Monday is an off day for Uganda’s Parliament but according to spokeswoman Helen Kawesa, Speaker Kadaga will call the Parliament together tomorrow. One of the first matters of business will be resolution of the chaos that developed last week over legislation to regulate the oil industry.  Kadaga called for a report from the Rules, Privilege and Discipline committee to identify those who were out of order during floor debate.

I suspect that any MPs identified will debate the committee’s finding and so we could have a contentious meeting tomorrow.

According to the MPs speaking on this video, it seems unlikely that many MPs will be singled out.

    It appears from today’s Order Paper that the intention is to deal with the report on the brawl, and then continue with the oil bills.

    Bahati’s Bloodbath Bill is still listed under Notice of Lunacy – sorry, I meant ‘Business’ – to Follow.
